Bicycles stolen from injured veterans

2 specially adapted bikes stolen from veterans organization

Tampa Police are still looking for two expensive bicycles stolen early Sunday morning (July 31) belonging to Project HERO Central Florida, a veteran's organization that helps wounded service men and women recover from their combat injuries. These bikes are specially adapted to the needs of the veterans who ride them and cost more than $2,500 each. While it may seem like just a bicycle to most, it's a way of life for these healing heroes and a critical piece in their recovery.
